Welcome to nine months of “Royal Baby Watch!” Kate Middleton is officially pregnant!
The palace confirmed the news on Monday morning, stating, “Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news…As the pregnancy is in its very early stages, Her Royal Highness is expected to stay in hospital for several days and will require a period of rest thereafter.”
After marrying Prince William over a year ago, the couple immediately mentioned their desire for a child, lending quickly to rumors and speculation. But now finally we have official confirmation of an upcoming royal child! Middleton is said to be less than 12 weeks pregnant, and is currently spending time at a London hospital, being treated for acute morning sickness.
If the world wasn’t already enamored by Middleton’s every fashion move, the following months as her belly grows are set to be extremely exciting in the world of fashion, design, and royal baby watch!
UPDATE: A royal prince or princess will join the world in July … and no, the Duchess isn’t having twins.
